2 Sleeps to go

Where oh where has our little dog gone?

In a little over 30 hours we will be on our way on Sun Princess. All are well and packing etc 99% complete. Having a few problems with luggage but what's new? Melinda and Josh have been upgraded and hopefully Shoshanah and Felix will be too. We took our Tippy to our son Mark's place
and can only hope she will not be a problem for them. Having two greyhounds and a GR hopefully will not be a handful. We are missing our furry friend already but it will be just 7 weeks til we see her again. Thank you heaps Mark, Luise, Harri and Rebekah.

Every one is finally well. After a week of visiting hospital we now look forward to next week and our flight across the Nullabor to Sun Princess at Fremantle. Will then have almost a week at sea to relax before arrival at Singapore. I have an afternoon's work at East melbourne today then will concentrate on making sure our house and packing are on track. Really looking forward to this trip and the great experiences it promises.

One potential diaster after an other

rain -16 °C

With Just 13 days to go Melinda has just been acutely ill with a gut complete of toxic proprortions which may need admission for antibiotics -initially intravenousbut should bounce back to normality in time for the strat of the Cruise. Celina is improving slowly but finging all of this stressful as well as having persistent pain in her own back. But she and Melinda are made of stronger stuuf and with a six day cruise at ses to reach Singapore we should be OK Melinda may yet need iv antibiotic to gain control of any gut infection. We keep hoping all will turnout brilliiantly.
